This Zhiyun-Tech Crane 3 Lab Creator Accessories Kit has everything you need to get started with your Zhiyun Crane 3 Lab gimbal. It consists of a smartphone holder, focus and zoom combo kit, a small handheld tripod, a large multifunctional camera belt, a quick setup kit, and a quick release baseplate.
The articulating smartphone holder secures phones up to 6.3" wide to the Crane 3 Lab, and it folds up when not in use. The quick setup kit consists of two adapters that allow you to put together and break down your gimbal quickly, rather than screwing the joints together. The handheld tripod is a compact tripod that can also be used as a handgrip on the top or bottom of your Crane 3 Lab when folded up.
The large camera belt allows you to conveniently mount various accessories to keep your hands free and offers additional support for your Crane 3 Lab. The quick release baseplate can attach to the camera belt or tripod to allow for quick camera changes to and from the Crane 3 Lab. Finally, the focus and zoom combo kit allows you to control your camera's focus and zoom from your smartphone while mounted on the Crane 3 Lab.
Zhiyun-Tech TransMount Max Servo Zoom/Focus Controller for Crane 3-Lab & WEEBILL LAB
The Zhiyun-Tech TransMount Max Servo Zoom/Focus Controller can be used interchangeably for zoom and focus control on the Crane 3-Lab and WEEBILL LAB gimbals. It has a powerful-enough motor to control zoom, whereas the lighter-weight TransMount Lite is designed for focus control only.
The Crane 3-Lab supports up to two motors at the same time, and it's recommended to use the TransMount Max and TransMount Lite together if requiring both zoom and focus control on the Crane. The WEEBILL, however, supports only one motor, so the TransMount Max is recommended as the only solution because it can be used interchangeably for both functions.
Featuring a toolless design, the TransMount Max attaches on the gimbal using just the included thumbscrews. It can be controlled via the gimbal handwheel or the companion smartphone app. Secure it to the supplied support bracket and mounting rod using two thumbscrews, and attach this assembly to the bottom of the gimbal's baseplate with the third thumbscrew. Then connect the servo to the gimbal with the provided USB cable, and connect the camera to the gimbal with one of the camera control cables the gimbal comes with. The USB cable connection provides zero-latency signal transmission.
